A little Zen, and some Tangles..
( To understand, and learn Zentangle®)
I for Interesting, Inspiring, Intuitive, Impromptu...and I.
There could be many words beginning with I, but I want to associate the above mentioned words with practicing Zentangle. In the last 3 years that I have been practicing, and teaching Zentangle, I have come across the above words being used by the students to describe their experiences with Zentangle. The last word, 'I', of course is added by me here.
For me, the word I stands for individuality to egoistic attitude. Harmless state to highly difficult one! The word 'I' is very complex. Can practicing Zentangle help simplify this 'I'? From my limited experience, my answer would be, 'May', or 'May not'. It does have a potential, but it is also just a tool. How you use a tool determines the end result.
If you use Zentangle only as an 'art', to be monetized, then perhaps you are heavily under utilizing its potential. When you cross the commercial temptations, you enter into the realm of transformation...you can then begin to 'simplify' this 'I'.
I would love to have your views too.
And in the meanwhile here is my Interesting (hope so), inspiring, intuitive and impromptu Zentangle Art using some I tangles, followed by the demo video to help freshers to learn tangling.
